The Capital Region Blues Network is holding its fourth annual fundraising bash tonight (Friday, April 11). Music, raffles and a silent auction will be held at the Fuller Roadhouse Grille in Albany at 7pm.

Rhett Tyler and his Early Warning band and Soul Sky will bring their talents for the evening.

Mark Emanatian has a long history with the CRBN network and says it is important for him to be supportive as the organization does much to educate young artists about the history of blues music by being part of the Blues in Schools programs.

“I have been involved especially playing with Folding Sky and the Ernie Williams band, and I think all these blues societies across the states are a great movement, as they are keeping an essential art form alive,” said Emanatian.

    Thanks for running this, Nippertown. The event for CRBN did raise some money for the organization promoting blues in the area. Great performances by both Soul Sky and Rhett Tyler and his Early Warning Band. Wanda
